When a national holiday falls on a Tuesday in Spain the whole country takes the Monday
off and calls it a "puente" (a bridge). The first time this happened as a new arrival in
Madrid we headed down to Cordoba for a long weekend and my love affair with Andalucia
began. I couldn't believe the beauty of this former capital of Moorish Spain and to this
day I try to go there several times a year. With time I would discover Seville and Granada
which added to my fascination with Andalucia and in recent times I've found myself
increasingly intrigued by the much underrated city of Malaga. Incidentally, when two
national holidays fall in the same week, on a Tuesday and a Thursday, some workers call
it an "acqueducto" and take the whole week off!
